Loading Topo maps into iPAQ 3955 pocket PC

Ok...I want to share this....

I found a way to load topo maps to my iPAQ 3955...easy as ExpertGPS. After locating a map that you want to use just pull down the "Map" menu and then select "export Image". this will save in a Jpeg format. then just drop and drag to a folder on your ipaq and your ready to go....the iPAQ then views the map in windows viewer. However, ExpertGPS does let you zoom in and out. so, look for your quality preference. It also alows you to change the size of the exported file. You'll have to play with this. I can open a 1meg jpg. file, but not a 2meg file without a memory upgrade. Not a problem though...just save separate map leg files and change the file your viewing as you go along.


I hope this helps others...I don't know if the shareware version of ExpertGPS will allow you to export files. I may be worth the purchase. I already made the purchase sometime ago...
